Rate My Media App

Description

The idea for this app was inspired by Roni Dean-Burren and her son Coby whose World Geography textbook described African slaves as “workers” in a section on immigration. The video of this mother, educator and doctoral student exposing the misrepresentation went viral. Months later Ms. Dean-Burren was able to get McGraw-Hill, the publisher, to change the text and reissue schools copies of the revised version. This was a testament to the power of the people to make a difference in how their children are educated. We wanted to take this a step further and not only focus on educational media but entertainment as well.
